i can’t escape from you lyrics – hank williams

recorded by hank williams, sr.

i’ve [c] tried and tried to run and hide
to find a [c7] life that’s [g7] new
but [c] where i go, i [f] always [c] know
i can’t es-[g7] cape from [c] you.

a jug of wine to numb my mind
but what good does it do
the jug runs dry and still i cry
i can’t escape from you.

these wasted tears are souvenirs
of a love i thought was true
your memory is chained to me
i can’t escape from you.

there is no end, i can’t pretend
that dreams will soon come true
a slave too long to a heart of stone
i can’t escape from you.
